Adhir Chowdhury, the Congress MP from Bengal who is the party's leader in the Lok Sabha, today told the House that he wanted pilot Abhinandan Varthaman's "goph" to be declared the "national moustache".
Goph in Bengali is moustache.
Chowdhury said the IAF Wing Commander, who was captured by Pakistan and later released, should be nationally honoured.
Then he said: "Yeh jo uska goph hai na, usko natioanal moustache se nawaja karo (His moustache should be declared the national moustache)." The IAF pilot wore a moustache style that is called the gunslinger.
Chowdhury's mention of the moustache immediately sparked several Twitter joke threads.
To some, Chowdhury's request was absurd.
I would say that its the most absurd thing I have heard in Indian parliament but its been worse.— rohit ranjan روہت (@rht_ranjan) June 24, 2019
Too many on Twitter found Choudhury's comment too funny.
